Sony-HX80

Sony has just busted out a new travel zoom camera called the DSC-HX80 or HX80 that boasts of a pretty significant 30x optical zoom, given its tiny body. It also features a built-in pop-up electronic viewfinder (EVF) and can be yours for about $350 USD, come April.

The design of the camera reminds us a lot of Sony's RX100 series, which continues to be one of the best compact system cameras around. The HX80 features a 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor along with the retractable Oled viewfinder. In addition to the EVF, you also get a 921k-dot 3-inch LCD display which can flip upwards to assist you in taking selfies. The camera also gets Wi-Fi and NFC for syncing with Sony's Play Memories app on your smartphone.

Other notable features include a 5-axis image stabilisation system, 1080p video recording capability and a maximum aperture of f/3.5. Native ISO range is set at 80-3200 which can be expanded to 12800. The HX80 can also do burst shooting at around 10fps. Overall, the camera seems like a well-rounded package given the price and features it offers.
